[TYPO3-50-general] 404 for backend login

Ok, I tried it with a default Ubuntu server 10.10 just doing the steps 
you described and the problem is, that by default the apache mod_rewrite 
is not enabled, which does the url magic. You need this for everything 
to work properly. To activate:

cd /etc/apache2/mods-enabled
ln -s /etc/apache2/mods-available/rewrite.load rewrite.load

And finally change the AllowOverride directive in the directory parts of 
your apache host config to at least FileInfo instead of none so that 
apache reads .htaccess files.
